For parents, choosing a childcare option can be stressful and overwhelming. As fathers themselves, brothers Pat and Mike Brown recognized that stress for families in their hometown of Fort Worth, Texas — parents didn’t want just another babysitter for their children. Rather, they were looking for a trusted educational childcare option that would aid in their child’s development. With that in mind, Pat and Mike opened their first Children’s Lighthouse school in 1997 and the rest, as they say, is history!
What is Children’s Lighthouse?
At Children’s Lighthouse, we believe that every child has a right to excellence in all aspects of early education. And, we believe that every one of our franchise owners, teachers and staff members can make a difference in the lives of the children and families that we serve.
Children’s Lighthouse provides a nurturing environment with a highly effective curriculum that promotes cognitive, intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. We’re a family-focused, premium early learning school with a concentration on developing children academically and emotionally from as early as six weeks old.
